The iPod Shuffle – Jay-Z’s “A Week Ago”

By 12.30.11

After securing my Concord XI’s a few days ago, I can finally sit back and take stock of what transpired over the last week. For the past few years, securing a pair of shoes took nothing more than me telling my boys to hold a pair of 13’s to the side and let me know when they needed the bread. That all changed thanks to a bevy of complaints being sent to Footlocker corporate just prior to a sneaker release that most people wouldn’t have had a snowball’s chance in hell of getting, even if they camped out for three days. Needless to say I wasn’t too happy when I received a phone call letting me know that I’d have to take my chances with the masses in getting a pair of Concords.

December 23rd was filled with missed opportunities and a couple of near misses. My crew watched our Ocean’s Eleven-esque plan fall apart while witnessing an empty mall become filled with frantic shoppers from the inside. While heading back home after a quick trip out of the city to another sneaker spot after another unsuccessful effort later that morning, Jay-Z’s and Too $hort’s collabo from Vol. 2 came to mind and perfectly summed up the morning’s efforts. After getting back home and listening to “A Week Ago” for the first time in a long time, I could shake my head and laugh at the parallels between my week and the song.
